Wigtown Book Festival

September 22, 2017, 12:00 AMOctober 1, 2017, 12:00 AM EDT

Wigtown is a traditional market town, set in the beautiful countryside of Dumfries & Galloway, south-west Scotland. It is also Scotland’s National Book Town, a designation that reflects its dozen or so secondhand bookshops and annual literary festival.
Founded in 1999, the 10-day Wigtown Book Festival is now one of the UK’s best-loved literary events and this year has more than 200 events and activities for all ages, including music, theatre, food and visual arts. The Guardian has called it “the sort of festival people become possessive about”.
